  • Wacky side-scrolling beat ‘em up — Play as Gen-san as he hammers away at corporate evil across Japan and the world in this vibrant, action-packed platformer. The comic adventure unfolds fully-voiced in English and Japanese.
  • Be more than a hammerin’ hero — Choose from a variety of jobs, including sushi chef, baseball player, and diver, to give Gen different costumes and attacks as he fights through 12 crazy stages. Along the way, make allies in battle, collect loads of items, and even unlock two more playable characters!
  • Ad-hoc multiplayer — 2 players can play together and compete for the best score on each level over ad-hoc wireless play. Why hammer alone when you can hammer with a friend?


Forget everything your parents told you about violence only being a last resort. In Hammerin’ Hero, if it moves, hammer it. Pummel your way through 12 arcade-style, old school beat ’em up stages, including city streets, an amusement park, a TV studio, a baseball stadium, and more. Ever wonder what happens if you hammer something over the head in deep space? Underwater? The only way to find out is with a copy of Hammerin’ Hero for PSP system. This is one hero you don’t want to mess with! (hint: because he has a hammer.)

Awesome game! Worth getting.
This revival of the Hammerin Harry series is very impressive. Great graphics, fun level designs and wacky enemies to face.

This game is completely wacky, but I love it. It may all be in Japanese, but it is fantastic game none the less. If your into Japanese, then its not much of a problem then.

This game is hard though, but it's one of the best side scrollers ive played in years. Unlockable costumes and all of the weirdness is really entertaining.

The only weird problem is the frame rate. It will just drop unexpectedly. Thats because the game is pushing a lot of animations and background animations, and the 2D stages are not just stale pre-rendered background, there's so much gorgeous animation to take in. Definately one of IREMs best games.

I say pick it up if you love Japanese games, love IREM, or happen to like the Hammerin Harry series. I doubt this will ever come state side considering that there's a new Hammerin Harry anime series as well that coinsides with the game.
